    Me and my dad!! Willow and Walker relaxing at a show in Newcastle

Willow is our miracle baby! A long-awaited puppy from Walker and Evie, she has been an eye-catching girl right from the start.

Willow is Little Miss Personality! She barrels in amongst the big dogs and wreaks havoc with abandon - stealing dollies and jumping all over everyone! They tolerate her very well and realise it's pointless to protest!

She has an amazing joie de vivre - life is a blast for her and she is affectionate and playful.

Willow initially found standing still a challenge but at her very first show at the age of 12 weeks and 3 days, she took 2nd place in Baby Bitch class at the May 2011 championship show of the Golden Retriever Club of NSW.

After her class several exhibitors commented on how beautiful she is. I was so proud of her!!
Then at her very next show she came 3rd in a large 3-6 months all breeds sweepstakes - 14 weeks old!
Not to be outdone .... at 16 weeks she beat 25 other puppies to win FIRST PLACE in a 3-6 months sweepstakes!
What a fantastic start to her show career!!

Willow has gone from strength to strength! At the tender age of 8 months she had 7 all-breeds sweepstakes placings to her credit, 6 Baby in Group and Minor in Group wins and one Baby in Show! At the Golden Retriever Club NSW show in September 2011 she won Opposite Minor in Show. The judge, breed specialist Mrs J. Grimmett of Haydene Goldens in the UK, had this to say about Willow:

Pale coated bitch, with excellent reach of neck, good bone, nice tight feet, good topline, enjoying her day out.

She has also started on her way to her championship title with a Best of Breed win at just 9 months of age. All very exciting for a young puppy!

She has matured into a truly beautiful girl. Just 14 months old, at the Sydney Royal Easter Show in 2012, Willow won the Junior bitch class! What a thrill!!

  

In November 2014 Willow gained her AUSTRALIAN CHAMPIONSHIP title. Very thrilling!! She moves effortlessly around the ring and always tries to please her mum!!
